Nile Virus Concerns In Saskatchewan According To The Local health Authority

The Youngstown City Health District was notified Monday by the Ohio Department of Health that one of the mosquitoes tested from one of the local health district's traps was confirmed positive for carrying West Nile virus.

In 2017, there were 20 human cases of West Nile virus reported in Pennsylvania.

The more DEET a product contains, the longer the repellent can protect against mosquito bites.

According to a press release, this is the first bird that tested positive for West Nile virus in Milwaukee County since surveillance for the mosquito-transmitted virus began May 1.

The risk of acquiring WNV infection depends on various factors including time of year, number and location of infected Culex species of mosquitoes, and the number of days with sufficient heat.

Avoid areas where mosquitoes are prevalent.

Sergio Marchionne Currently in a Coma With Irreversible Brain Damage
The colourful and charismatic Marchionne became chairman of Ferrari in September 2014, replacing Luca di Montezemolo. Marchionne brought it back to profitability in just one year, recording income of almost 1.5 billion euros in 2005.

Serious illness associated with virus is rare, but can include central nervous system disorders including encephalitis and/or meningitis.

As mosquitoes use water to lay eggs and reproduce, health officials recommend draining or reducing standing water amounts, such as in pools, containers, rain downspouts, and so on.

Airplanes will spray a fine mist of an insecticide called Trumpet EC over sections of Elk Grove, the Pocket Neighborhood and neighborhoods south of Fruitridge Road. However most people make a full recovery. People with certain medical conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, and people who have received organ transplants, are also at greater risk.

Fix holes in screens and attach properly to windows. Always follow the package directions when using repellents.

Anyone who sees sick or dying birds should call the Kankakee County Health Department, Environmental Health, at 815-802-9410, which will determine if the bird is eligible to be picked up for testing.
